Civil activist and a mother of many children Tatsiana Hatsuara (pregnant at the time) turns 31 today.

She was detained by an unknown man 9.20 a.m. The woman managed to inform human rights activists that she was taken to the Tsentralny District Police Department of Minsk. From there she was guarded to the Tsentralny District Court where she was fined 700,000 rubles for holding an unauthorized action.
The matter is that on 6 December she had sent an address to Aliaksandr Lukashenka, asking to commute the death penalty to Dzmitry Kanavalau and Uladzislau Kavaliou for a life sentence, Euroradio reports.

In order to hand in the address to Aliaksandr Lukashenka, Tatsiana Hatsura staged a performance. Accompanied by her 10-year-old and 9-year-old sons, she came to the building of the Administration with a poster: “Mister President, I have 4 children, who will guarantee a right to life for them?”
